'Much here will be eye-opening to those who are too quick to dismiss the political consciousness of the coming generation and the future of journalism. Rather than focusing on youth news consumption as a problem, this book shows what's working about how young people share news and information with each other and what its implications are for fostering even greater degrees of civic and political participation.' Henry Jenkins, Co-author of By Any Media Necessary: The New Youth Activism
'In this beautifully written book, Clark and Marchi insightfully look beneath popular claims of youth apathy to reveal the multidimensionality of young Americans’ engagement with the news and the potential for reconnecting them to powerful media and political processes.' Sonia Livingstone, The London School of Economics and Political Science and author of The Class: Living and Learning in the Digital Age
'The future of democracy depends on how today’s young people learn to use, share, and produce the news. Clark and Marchi offer an impressive theoretical framework and rich and insightful narratives of actual youth to diagnose the current crisis and propose solutions.' Peter Levine, Associate Dean and Lincoln Filene Professor, Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life, Tufts University, Massachusetts
'A timely and pertinent volume. If you are curious about how young people can reinvent the future of journalism, read this outstanding and insightful book.'
